Fast-growing Newcastle law firm secures new city base for Naked Deli
Clean-eating restaurant business The Naked Deli has expanded into new premises.
The company launched a flagship eatery at Newcastle’s historic Central Arcade this week with the help of commercial law firm St James’ Square.
Naked Deli’s new site, occupying 97 and 99 Grey Street, will offer eat-in and take-away options on the company’s range of whole and natural-state fresh food.
Martin Wilson and Jenny Atkin, from the commercial property department at Newcastle firm St James’ Square, advised The Naked Deli on the deal to secure and redevelop the Grade II-listed premises.
Naked Deli property director Ian Jones said: “We are delighted to open our new Grey Street branch and bring our healthy and nutritious food to more people in the heart of Newcastle.
“The team at St James’ Square was fantastic throughout the negotiations.”
St James’ Square associate Jenny Atkin commented: “The Naked Deli is an exciting addition to Grey Street and brings a unique healthy dining experience to Newcastle city centre.
“The design of the restaurant fits perfectly with the iconic listed buildings and is true to the brand’s unique style.”
She continued: “Like St James’ Square, The Naked Deli is a young, dynamic business with big ambitions for the future so our partnership works really well.
“We are thrilled to have worked with The Naked Deli during its expansion into their new flagship premises and congratulate them on this latest milestone achievement.”
In November, St James’ Square announced a turnover of £1.3m after just 18 months in business. The firm now employs a team of 28 and operates from a 5,000 sq ft office at Esh Plaza in Newcastle Great Park.
The Naked Deli was founded in 2014 and operates additional sites at Fenwick’s food hall, Gosforth and the departure lounge at Newcastle Airport.
The company’s Grey Street restaurant opened its doors on Tuesday (December 11).
